Energy efficiency is good for the environment. Super E® homes reduce the impact on the environment by reducing the amount of fossil fuels required to heat them. But that’s not all.
Each Super E® home must take a minimum number of measures specifically intended to reduce environmental impact. Super E® builders may opt to use recycled insulation materials, wood products engineered to reduce environmental impact, or be “pre-wired” to accept renewable energy systems such as photovoltaics or solar water heating.
In addition, Super E® homes are made of Canadian-sourced wood. Canada has the highest rate of certified sustainable forests in the world.
